Root cause of the Yanks problems against Houston

Is the fact that too many players are banged up and/or just back from the IL and not in sync.  


The entire training staff and medical staff has to go.   Hit the reset button already.


It's unacceptable that the assets they've managed to put together are being mishandled by these goons and that's what will cost them rings.   Give Steve Donohue a nice watch and send him out to pasture.   Whatever has changed in the way guys are working out nowadays has passed him by and he's butchering his roles of preventing injuries, rehabbing players and knowing when they're ready to play again.


Sick.  Of.   It.   RESET.

Steve Donohue fixes injuries and he has nothing to do with  preventing injuries or rehabbing  players and when they're  ready, or their work out regimens. Those decisions  aren't made by him.

The head of the snake is responsible ultimately for the entire body.

Root cause of the yankees problems against houston?


Cashman - no guts, no balls, no heart - and that all trickles down and reflects on the teams he's built.  After all didn't God create man in his image?


Some say he can only spend what he's allowed and there may be some truth to that, but ultimately he's accountable for this, he's the architect.  He's great at getting position players, but useless at getting pitchers.  How many good arms have to go by the wayside before this guy makes a move.  I mean even an simple fan like me would have built a winner by now if I had this money and a crack at Cole, Corbin, Sherzer, Verlander, etc....the Yankees have had a shot at all these arms that are coming back to beat us and are fighting for the championship and yet the Yankees didn't want any of them - why?  This isn't a recent development, this goes back to the days when he couldn't get Randy Jonshon in here until it was too late.  Need new management and a coaching staff with some gonads....plain and simple !


Or maybe it's a conspiracy and it's all political - the rest of the league is conspiring against the Yankees - I mean as dumb as that may sound, there's probably some truth to that too !


Other teams have less resources, yet have stronger pitching - both Houston and the Nationals have a lower payroll than the Yankees.  I mean look at the Rays.  Put Eric Neander and Kevin Cash at the helm and give them $200M to spend and let's see what they do.  


He's been getting schooled by the roid sox since the early 2000's.  You'd think by now he'd learn something.


Here's my suggestion:  get Epstein in here and get Francona in here to run the baseball operations and let them bing in the coaches and the rest and I guarantee you the Yankees will get another 27 rings in this century.  I can't say I like these guys after what they did to the Yankees, but if boston is dumb enough to let them go - this would be the last century's curse repeating itself all over again.  It may take a few years, but however long it takes, they should do whatever it takes to get these brains in here and then do whatever it takes to hand on to them, otherwise they'll keep folding like cheap tents every year.

I don;t know about conspiring against the Yankees, but it sure does appear that teams are always trying to break the bank with the Yankees and are willing to compromise with other teams.

I don't believe there is any conspiracy, but agree with your point.


With most trades that never happened, it certainly looks that the other team took less in trade from another club than they asked from the Yankees. Stroman is the most recent example of this.

It's not THAT dumb. It's openly known the Yankees are the most hated team in baseball. Yeah, the Cardinals hate the Cubs, yeah the Phillies hate the Nats, but everybody hates the Yankees. Are any GM's going to do any favors for the Yankees? Probably not


There's also the matter that Cashman has been VERY successful with trades, and this goes back a long time. Yeah, Pineda didn't super work out, but Montero crashed and burned. Yeah, Granderson struck out a lot, but we gave up Austin Jackson who's a career 4th OF. There also aren't a lot of prospects who we gave up who really blossomed elsewhere. If anything, the criticism has been a lack of successful prospects rather than a guy like McKinney and his .696 OPS for Toronto


So with that in mind, it does make sense that a GM would have a higher ask of the Yankees because the GM knows the Yankees are successful at winning trades, so to not lose the trade they're going to be skeptical of the package being offered. 


But at the end of the day, it's about business and relationships and that's why cashman still does get so many trades done

You are welcome to recall my posts when it becomes that i'm proven wrong as long as we judge it on the merits of what we knew to be true at the time it was posted.
